It doesn't get any better than this!

Today I have decided to review my all time favorite beauty product...Clnique Almost Makeup, the best foundation EVER! What I love about it is that it gives you that "perfect skin but not wearing makeup" look. It is a sheer foundation, but still has coverage to even out your skin town and cover up imperfections. I wear Fair. Love it love it love it! I have recently also bought Clinique Moisture Sheers in Fair. I love it too- it is very similar to Almost Makeup but it is more sheer. Very light moisturizer with a little coverage. Both products have SPF 15. If you need something to buy to rake it in on the local Clinique Free Gift, I would definitely recommend these two foundations!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Oh how I love thee! Philosophy "When Hope Is Not Enough" serum

I was never a big gimmicky skincare person. I used whatever basics the dermatologist recommended- cetaphil to wash my face, purpose, lubriderm, etc.. type lotions to moisturize and that was it. My skin always was a little dry and makeup never sat right on it, especially later in the day. I NEVER used concealer because it looked so cakey and old and gross under my eyes. Then along came QVC. ON a whim I bought the Philosophy skincare line. The cleanser (Purity Made Simple) is just so so- if it did not come with the kit, I would not neccessarily buy it. The other stuff (moisturizer and mini peel) are great, but I really think the serum has made the biggest difference! Adding this serum under my moisturizer has changed my life. Ok, maybe not my life, but at least the skin! My skin stays moisturized ALL DAY and my makeup and concealer look great. The best part is the serum does not make your skin greasy. If you tend to have dry skin, I would definitely recommend adding this to your routine!

Do you use a serum with your skincare? I would love any cheapie/drugstore brand recommendations. What works best for you?
